Water Conservation . . . Again

As predicted and expected, my water in the main tank did not last until I can next fill up on Monday morning. (I got seven showers out of it . . . not bad.) 

Or at least when I hope to fill up Monday morning, as I don’t know if the dump station that I have been using the last couple of years is active or not . . . who knows.

I will find out early on Monday morning, as I make a detour to it after leaving my Western Home in order to head for work. 

For now, I am back to jug showers and using the water in my last 5 gallon jug of water. 

Again, this is nothing new and so I am doing what I always do: adapt what I am doing in order to better suit the current situation. That really is the trick to this lifestyle. 

When faced with a situation, just ask these three questions: 

What can I safely get away with? 
What can I possibly get away with, but would be risky?
What can I not get away with?

That should help you spell out our options and your better judgment, along with experience, and your risk tolerance will help you determine what the best course of action is. 

For now, I will just use the remaining water in my main tank to wash my hands and flush the toilet. I will use my 5 gallon jug for my sole water and just make it through until Monday morning. 

If for whatever reason in can’t use my usual RV dump station, I will figure out what to do then. The one thing I won’t do is roll over and die. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward.
